Environment

President Phil Hanlon ’77 and his wife, Gail Gentes, will take a look at Dartmouth’s impact in one of the most remote places in the world—the Arctic. The 10-day expedition with mostly alumni to Greenland and the Arctic Circle is led by Ross Virginia, Director of the Institute of Arctic Studies.

Fifty-one Dartmouth students produced a Rauner Special Collections Library exhibit exploring Shackleton and the Antarctica of his time. Don't miss a related exhibit in the Russo Gallery of the Haldeman Center about more recent explorations.
